Everytime you adjust your truss rod, God kills a kitten.

But seriously if you bend anything back and forth too much, it will splinter and break, the same goes for the neck of your guitar.

If it's adjusted a lot in a short time it may cause damage, when making adjustments I do a slight turn and then leave the guitar for about 10 minutes before rechecking and seeing if it needs further adjustment.

A number of factors have to be taken into consideration. The severity of the adjustments, the frequency of adjustments and the breed of wood.

Worse case scenario, the neck will snap after a set number of adjustments. Most likely, frequent truss rod adjustments will lead to a increase risk of warping the older it gets.

It's subjective. A straighter neck will allow you to lower the action, with the side effect of fret buzzing at lower frets. Most necks have a slight curve to allow the lowest possible action with the least amount of fret buzz.

The truss rod will break before the neck does. Frequent fiddling will cause it to strip, like any thread.

In some situations yes, but this isn't always the outcome.

you don't need to adjust your truss rod everyday.
you only need to adjust it probably once every 3~6 months.
you can turn your truss rod, but it is recommended to know what you're doing.
be patient when you adjust the truss rod. it may not take instant effect.
don't jerk the allen key back and forth. it'll strip the truss rod nut.
if you swear that truss rods are only for professionals no need to worry.


if you swear that the truss rod will explode if you don't know how to turn it, also, shut up.
